The side of Cavity rock facing Toy Boat has 4 bolted routes (as of the date climbed). This is the furthest route to the left as facing the rock. Follow the bolts to a short chimney. Anchors at top of chimney. Very fun!


4 bolts


The anchors have been lowered so to not have to do the last few feet of the chimney Sep 13, 2002

This is a very fun route with a good friction move about half way up. good climb to introduce people to black hills friction. having the anchors lower is nice. Apr 23, 2004
8 or 9 draws? Not too sure about that. I did not climb this route because someone was on it. But all the routes on this side of rock has 3 or 4 bolts? May 31, 2004

The route is fun to do and has 5 bolts to the anchors. Putt Putt Toot Toot (5.7) is directly west of Stormy Night on the back of Toy Boat I and there's a 5.4 and a 5.3 on the back of Toy Boat II. Again, I don't know their names. I agree this is a nice spot for introducing climbers to Needles friction and for someone's first lead. All of the climbs mentioned above are short and easy to bail from if weather threatens. Also both Stormy Night and Tranquil Evening are in total shade for much of the morning. Jul 13, 2004

If you follow the bolts up (the picture shows someone going up just left)it feels harder than 5.7 Dec 25, 2005

Great easy lead. After leading we set this up as a TR for the kids and worked on the routes to the right. Very solid route with good friction, edging and balance moves. Jul 8, 2012

Nice memorable little route. Was told that there had been some breakage in the crux. This left me with two moves that clearly felt like 5.8. May 2, 2013
